the country. today a new shocking story of what nasa knew has america talking. we have the real story here tonight. good to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. a big thank you this evening to hk for finally saying what really needed to be said. today was clinton's final day as secretary of state. she begins her life as a private citizen tomorrow. and for now, she has nothing to lose politically. so when the associated press asked clinton about the republican lawmakers who grilled her on benghazi, this was the secretary's response. "they just will not live in an evidence-based world, and that's regrettable. it's regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances." amen to that. the president might not be able to call out republicans like this. democratic lawmakers certainly might not be able to do it, but hillary clinton has no fear of speaking the truth now that she is going to be a private citizen. her appearances in front of the congressional committees on benghazi, the investigation turned into a

". >> reporter: "colombia" was 200,000 feet up when the spacecraft began to fall apart. unknown to nasa and the team, the shuttle had been damaged. a chunk of foam had come off in liftoff and punctured the wing. at the command center, rick husband's widow was thinking the worse. >> i was thinking is that it? is that the end of rick's life. >> reporter: seven sastronauts died that morning leaving behind family and friends. in an instance, she was a single mom with two young children, and without rick, it was hard. >> god created families to have a mom and dad. and so when rick left, he was a great dad. an amazing man. it was challenging to raise them as a single mom. >> reporter: there has been healing evelyn says, but it is not done. >> it is a lifelong process. i don't think that pain ever completely goes away, and perhaps the greatest memorial to "colombia" sits across the water
already gone off into private consulting on flight safety because i was tired of the way nasa was decaying. but people who were still there told me they wished they had the warning. if they had ten days warning, early in the flight, had seen the hole in the wing. that would have mobilized all their energies and the whole country's and the world's energies. they would have tried to find ways to macgyver the wing and find something on board to stick in the whole. they had to find ways to get the other ship that was being canted down into space sooner. and if they didn't have enough air on board, they would have found ways to get other rockets from other countries. and there were some available, to throw fly canisters up into space where the shuttle could have chased them down and grabbed them before the shuttle's own power ran out. those things might have happened. in hindsight, the accident investigation board looked at them and couldn't really figure out any way that was surely going to work. but they would have tried. >> yeah. >> well, a story that surrounds american heros who were lost d
